Portland writers team up to help each other (and it doesn’t hurt that one is named Palahniuk)

Shelf Awareness reports: “A few weeks ago, bestselling author Chuck Palahniuk sent 50 Easter baskets to independent booksellers around the country hoping they'd love and then handsell a memoir that was part of the package, The Chronology of Water by Lidia Yuknavitch (Hawthorne Books). Both authors are part of a Portland, Ore., writing group that also includes Chelsea Cain (Evil at Heart), who wrote the introduction to Yukavitch's book.”

[Full disclosure: I know Chuck and Chelsea enough to make small talk with - Lidia I have not met - yet.]
